Trivia

In 1990, Rakesh Roshan was contemplating signing Kimi Katkar opposite Amitabh Bachchan for his new project. Later, he dropped the idea of signing Katkar and penciled Sangeeta Bijlani and Ashwini Bhave for the role. The film with Bachchan never got made, but Roshan Sr. did go ahead with the project and signed Jackie Shroff instead. It was later titled KING UNCLE. See more »

Very Sweet!
6 February 2006 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

You will really like this film... If you can get past your first impressions of Pooja Ruparel .... Munna (orphan girl), you will soon come to love this film. Granted Pooja is a bit over the top in her portrayal, a bit like watching the stage production of Annie, but she does seem to manage to steal your heart in the end, just as she does in the film.

Just remember, this is an older film, from Shah Rukh Khan's early days in films, so things may seem a bit dated, but you will soon get past that, and come to love the characters and story.

This is a very sweet film.
